This is an idea we love. Urban Ministries of Durham has developed Spent, an online game that showcases the realities, crises, and decisions that millions of Americans must face each day. Being unemployed or under-employed can mean taking low paying jobs, dealing with housing issues, not buying enough groceries, and not being involved in your children's lives. Play the game and see how many days you can go before running out of money.
